You Are Bold, Daring, & A Fox

Maison Kitsune, one of the most profound, and upstanding collections and boutiques out there, held another delightful store event late today on Lafayette Street just off of Spring Street here in New York City’s SoHo that is Lower Manhattan, to celebrate their latest core Parisien collection that was seen by a slew of Maison Kitsune fashionista fans filling up the store in this 2 hour Saturday afternoon event, as well as Maison Kitsune revealing their first celebrity collaboration ever, the lucky Hollywood star holding this honor is Rashida Jones, daughter of world-renowned music genius, Quincy Jones.

As Rashida Jones has built her own unique star power starting off in memorable roles on “The Office”, then working her way to a starring role in TBS’s “Angie Tribeca”, signing on Rashida Jones is a major milestone for Maison Kitsune who adopts their first celebrity ambassador for their core Parisien collection which is modified and updated every spring and fall with new pieces, designs, patterns, and accessories to go with the bold red, white, and blue signifying the flag of the country of France, and it’s that ever-prominent fox that stays with Maison Kitsune in all its collection, posing itself as embroidered emblems, ties, and on plain white tees showing off the colors of France.

Also on Maison Kitsune’s docket are jackets, dishes, cups, and such showing off its namesake, Paris, and cafes you would find in France, Maison Kitsune also keeps in touch with the French music scene by celebrating French artists in their Parisien collection, which all of Maison Kitsune stores around the world are partying over right now just like here in New York.

The one thing Daniel plus Lauren loves with Maison Kitsune is not only its first celebrity ambassador being Rashida Jones, but all the creative and unique ways the fox has a presence in their collection, whether it’s tried and true, or fresh and new.

No Frills Are Sometimes Best

We get excited about so many people, places, and things in our life that it’s no wonder we’re so busy trying to do everything we love, or everything we must as much as we can without losing our heads in the process, but even us busy folks that are easily evoked by the big moment also clamor for the littlest thing too which can be spending a weekend at home, or even just going out to dinner with friends, today is no different with The LC.com Edit as Lauren Conrad and her crew do everything they can not only to provide simple loves, but do a little ole empowering in your soul.

Let’s get happy as always about fashion, there’s nothing more exciting than taking a moment for ourselves and buying a new dress, Lauren went on and found a transitional dress for the just arrived spring which is the Who What Wear Button Down Tiered Mini Dress.

When we’re at home, the only thing more important than paying the bills and rent is bringing the entire family together for as many gatherings as possible without inconvenience, and a good reinforcement like a wall portrait may just do the trick, all we have to do is Come Together, and it’s done by Our Heiday Affirmations Come Together Print.

It’s not talked about too often, but this simple game changer with grocery shopping definitely deserves to be praised, even if you’re using it to bring food to work or use it as an extra bag to travel in, you’ll find it very convenient if you’re one who buys fresh food everyday, it’s the reusable bag, it’s found in ‘A La Playa’ Reusable Tote by The Little Market.

New simple things also surprise us when least expected, we see it in Skimm This Podcast breaking down all the news of the day, and a good witches tail called The Witch Elm: A Novel by Tana French that’s worth a weekend staycation.

One Minor Change Can Do So Much

No one believes it, not even yours truly who’s Daniel plus Lauren could believe it, even Jessi Burrone, who brings us this piece today wasn’t a believer at first, but it’s true, that little adjustment you make in your wardrobe or especially your makeup can speak an entire book about who your are or what you wanna be, though this contributor of Lauren Conrad strives to keep life decision in light- hearted matter today, you gotta admit it’s the most liberating thing one can do outside reserved moments, it’s pulling off colorful eye makeup.

While we’re all excited to get our new found freedom of colorful eye makeup on our faces, you must clear up the mundane routine you held for once a long time, it starts not only with a clean face, but a clean set of makeup brushes that must be cleansed first so no residue is left behind from the day before.

Now that you’ve scoured your brushes clean to start a brand-new day, it’s now time to start the blending process, but you must proceed with caution as you don’t wanna cross pink with blue, green, or brown, etc.; a pink eye makeup needs to stay in the pink family, like blending dark pink with light pink.

Neutrality is a way to play it save when handling your color eye makeup, but it doesn’t have to be that way with your cheeks, lips, eyeliner, eyebrows, or even your jewelry or outfits as you blend your light to dark pink on your eyes, you have the right to make a statement, or not.

Lauren Conrad springs daisies with LC Lauren Conrad

Spring Us Out Of Winter

Technically, if you look into it where The Old Farmer’s Almanac is concerned, we’re still under the chains of winter whether we like it or not, because spring doesn’t start until later today at 5:58 p.m. EDT, so we can’t celebrate the spoils that spring brings up here in New York City and the rest of the country just yet, but it’s not stopping Lauren Conrad from revealing some nice daisies she’s come across with new her spring pieces from Lauren’s LC Lauren Conrad collection over at Kohl’s, not slowing the spring equinox in progress now taking place.

As focused as LC Lauren Conrad is, there’s never been more focus on daisies than anything else, it starts with a pair of skinny jeans where tiny daisies are embroidered up and down these bottoms, but taking center stage here would be a lemon embroidered floppy hat, perforated cross body handbag, and an everyday pullover sweater taking the cake with a daisy and a smile.

While it’s hard to miss a black button down top that’s nothing but big prints of daisies, you can’t miss the flower-embroidered cloche hat all in white along with a pair of all-white feel good midrise skinny jeans which may not have any daisies on itself, but easily falls in line with the white on daisies.

Those feel good midrise skinny jeans all white come in handy once again as they pair well with a flounce-sleeve top in white that carries tiny black and gray daisies all around the top.

‘Tis The Season…. To Get Organized

Yes, as FOX starts anew today being a media company without its own movie & TV studio, and as Disney gets ready to take over what they bought out from FOX at 12:02 a.m. tomorrow morning, it just so happens that spring too is just hours away from awakening while we bid adieu to what’s been yet another cold winter, so in the spirit of new beginnings, Lauren Conrad relies on her tried and true entities today to help you with any spring cleaning you want to conquer in your life, at least if it’s getting your home organized from all the clutter that’s gathered for so long.

The most appropriate thing to start with first from Lauren’s brands are LC Lauren Conrad, starting out with organizing tiny items with a bunny motif pink trinket tray, a heart shaped ceramic organizer for more paper clips to store, travel jewelry pouch and case to store all the jewelry you’ve been gathering all your life, bisque stone vase to hold those fresh spring flowers, and “Hello” paperweight table decor to keep all those desk files in check.

Let’s go next to the goodness of our souls with The Little Market and their female artisan made products, the notable item here today is the whimsical wicker basket that holds all kinds of towels and extra items you need for the bathroom if warranted, a ceramic tray to hold extra keys and such as well as use to serve up all kinds of treats, your woven serving tray can also be used to store newspapers, striped sisal baskets to store lots of toys, and glass jars to put all your cotton swabs, bobby pins, salt, sugar, and such.

Kristin Cavallari comments about Lauren Conrad’s success

Courtesy: Uncommon James

Call It A Truce?????

For nearly 15 years, it’s been no secret that Kristin Cavallari and Lauren Conrad are so-called frenemies, a little tiff way back in 2004 that got initiated from a little MTV show called “Laguna Beach”, it was Kristin who was dating Stephen Colletti, but it seemed Lauren has her eyes on the dashing teenage boy, which seemed not to please Kristin in any shape or form, it’s said to been a fierce rivalry ever since, but it looks like Kristin has finally turned the corner on her “old frenemy” named LC, who told E! News today what she thinks about Lauren’s business success.

As Kristin found herself in Pacific Palisades, California over the weekend with husband, Jay Cutler, and their 3 adorable children, Kristin revealed that she is nothing more than happy with Lauren Conrad’s success with Kohl’s, The Little Market, and success social media website being LaurenConrad.com, Kristin went onto note out of left field that she also is happy with the success that Heidi Montag has had post-“Hills”.

And of course, Kristin Cavallari’s very giddy about her own success with Uncommon James and the lifestyle brand it offers for young adult women, as well as with the newest extension of Uncommon James being Baby James, gearing to the young babies in one’s life.

And don’t forget Kristin’s successful top-selling books 2 years apart from each other being “Balancing In Heels” and “True Roots” cookbook, which gives more than sweet-tasting icing to Kristin Cavallari’s success.

Lauren Conrad’s favorite swimwear trends

Jump In The Pool Already

Well just when we couldn’t get enough of waiting for spring, we’re now thinking further ahead to beach season, otherwise known as summer where we strip nearly to the bare bone and work on our tans, drink a little more beer, run a few more miles, and eat more fruit than we could ever imagine, but you gotta look good while committing all those sins as you keep up with the latest fashions in swimsuits, it’s a self-fulfilling prophecy that Lauren Conrad takes up today giving light to the newest offerings from LC Lauren Conrad.

Swimming up first in the world of LC Lauren Conrad are ruffles, a classic detailing on swimsuits like one-pieces especially that’s been modernized and modified for slimmer body types at the bikini line of one-pieces, and on the waistline at the bottoms of two-piece swimsuits.

There’s one great moment where one-piece and two-piece swimwear meet in the middle, it’s the cutout piece as it’s truly a one-piece leaving an opening in the mid-section, they’re timeless, trendy, and come in many variations, the most notable one are high-waisted cut outs.

Bows are the worst kept secret to adding sex appeal to the bikini top, bows are now going beyond their cleavage duties and falling on straps of bikini tops for added cuteness.

If you haven’t seen a classic retro belted bikini, then you’ve missed out on elegance and sexiness this little minor detail gives to a classic one-piece tank bikini.

This long-running swimwear essential runs 50/50 with all swimsuit lovers, it’s hit or miss so to speak as it’s a bikini coverup where it nicely matches the bikini itself while one transports to and from the beach, or wears it before one is ready to reveal themselves.

Kristin Cavallari sends Jay Cutler to oversee Uncommon James on ‘Very Cavallari’

Where Does The Problem Lie????

Lately, despite the success that Kristin Cavallari’s had with Uncommon James, the obvious problem of shipments (10 to be exact) being delivered with nothing in them are something not to sneeze about, it can be an unforgiving situation on your brand, leaving a response where those customers respond with their feet and don’t look back, Kristin was determined to get to the bottom of it Sunday night on “Very Cavallari” by sending in husband, Jay Cutler, to see what and where the causes are in this shipping issue, and what’s needed to be done to solve this embarrassment.

It seems that Jay discovers that Brittany, who is the best worker Uncommon James has on their payroll, is very overworked with non-stop shipments, so Jay recommends that Brittany does not handle all shipments being exported out to costumers, a simple thing would be delegating the shipments to other workers so Brittany does not encounter the brunt of it.

Aside from shipping problems causing all the Uncommon James drama, other drama exist as Kristin talks with a former UJ employer who’s name is Kaylee, who says she was fired from UJ because Human Resources says that they were receiving a lot of complaints from employees about Kaylee’s actions, and that they could not tell Kaylee where the complaints were coming from, so Kristin goes of her way to rehire Kaylee after being dismayed but HR’s decision to fire Kaylee, but other Uncommon James employees are very upset that Kaylee is back, and do not have good things to say about Kaylee.

Lauren Conrad reveals spring hair styles for any length

What Does Warm Look Like?

There’s definitely a contrast to where Daniel plus Lauren feels spring coming up here in New York to where hair stylist, Amber Fillerup Clark feels spring out in Arizona who’s warmed up already, spring is coming on March 20 either way where it’s time to bloom out the latest spring styles in your wardrobe from head to toe, and we’re definitely ahead with the head part as far as hair is concerned, it’s also a fact that you can change up your hair style not only every couple years or every time a celebrity like Taylor Swift spawns and inspires it like back in 2014 with “Shake It Off”, but it can be changed at the start of a new season like spring, that’s why Amber’s here today to help Lauren Conrad and gang out with spring hair styles no matter how far down your hair reaches.

Amber, who happily heads Barefoot Blonde and Barefoot Blonde Hair starts out this March to spring hair with the short length, Amber says that people are going for the blunt cuts, so Amber recommends a textured bob reaching for the chin or right to your shoulders as you do your next trim short, it’s classy and adds lots of personality to any straight or curled hairstyle with waves to partner the curls.

As a new bundle of joy comes into your life, hair priorities take a certified backseat to raising a newborn once after giving birth, but it doesn’t mean the hair totally suffers, it’s best to keep a medium length hairstyle as the undone look is done without being completely undone.

There’s no way around it, long hair grants you unlimited style possibilities where one can go where no one has gone before, so give the scrunchie a chance as Amber stresses that there’s many colors and patterns of scrunchies out there to complement the luscious long hair.
